>>> good morning to you. thank you for being with us. i'm carol costello. >>> we begin today in bulgaria, still reeling from what the nation's interior minister says was a suicide bombing on a bus filled with israeli tourists. new developments continue to come in to cnn, but here's what we know right now. new security footage shows a man who bulgarian officials say is responsible for the attack. you see him there. in a surprising twist, this man was carrying a michigan driver's license, which fbi officials have now identified as a fake. seven people confirmed dead in the attack, including the bomber. 36 others wounded. three of them serious. let's bring in our reporter on the ground in bulgaria. let's talk about this fake michigan driver's license. any idea how this man got a hold of it? >> reporter: we really don't know. and of course we can't even tell whether or not he is american, if it's a fake i.d. all we really know is what we see on that security camera video that's come in from the airport. and basically it shows a man who could be an ordinary backpacker tourist. and

been worse. >> it could have been worse, and tell us ho it is worse for particular groups, because it is an uneven recovery here. >> it is very uneven. it is uneven across the sectors and part of the problem is that we get one sector of the economy engaged and the other sector is not, and vice versa, and uneven across the groups. with see the particular time when we look at for example whites, their unemployment remains the same. and latinos remains the same, but among african-americans, it increased significantly from 13.6% to 14.4%, so there is a lot of unevenness in this economy. >> which sekers to benefited here, because it seems that the kinds of jobs that people have are in service industries and temporary and not well paying jobs and not a lot of job security. >> you are exactly right, suzanne. they are in temporary help services with si t s wits which increase in jobs. and now looking at the reverse of that and where we would have liked to have seen the jobs created is in construction and only 2,000 jobs there because construction almost one-third of the workers who were di
